Sunday Quote: Extend Forgiveness

"To receive forgiveness cannot be our ultimate end.  When we are genuinely grateful for forgiveness given us, we will in turn extend grace and forgiveness  to others.  This is what it means to live in grace, to live in an unending stream of forgiveness.  Grace both receives and gives forgiveness without measure.  To receive the grace of God and yet treat others ungraciously is an act of wickedness.  No matter how much we are required to forgive in others, it pales in comparison to what God has forgiven in relationship to us." ~ Erwin McManus, Uprising, p. 123
